Doncaster beats No Surrender Longmuir

948

The appointment of Neil Doncaster as chief executive of the newly formed Scottish Professional (sic) Football League was a forgone conclusion, No Surrender Longmuir was interviewed out of professional courtesy, and the clubs realised that the calibre of external candidates they would attract at the moment would be from the bottom of the corporate pile.  Frankly, a heavy hitter would not apply.

Now that Doncaster is freed from his previous preoccupation – trying to parachute a new club into top flight football – he can worry about his key performance indicators, bringing commercial income into the league.  If he can’t deliver a good deal, or scams a ‘Homecoming’-type deal, by pulling money already committed by a benefactor, like his pal along the corridor, we’re better off without him.

My thanks to Billy No’well for inviting me onto his podcast show, Desert Island Tims, available here.  I had great fun choosing material for the show and even more fun talking about Celtic, and life, with Billy.

  1. Personally, I blame Catholic schools and the bored (sic) for the decine in church attendances.

  2. Doncaster or Longmuir?

     

     

    A bit like asking to choose who was the ‘nicest’ between Hitler and Stalin.

     

     

    HH!!

    I don’t understand why someone can think that Northern Ireland should be Irish but Scotland should be British.

     

    Personally I think we will be f*cked if we vote for Scottish independence and if we don’t we will be really f*cked.

    Im sure im right when i say there are people who just dont believe (or Believe :-))

     

     

    and that that influences their non-attendence.

    Why would a non believer attend? I just don’t get that but I know it happens. ;))

     

     

    As I say, it is embedded DEEP within our DNA, outside influences try to change it, they try to change it and spend Trillions in the process. It is the Garden of Eden magnified, if you like.

     

     

    I’ve told my Son, Mathematics, make sure you do well there. Thankfully, he is doing well in that field and is top of the class. I’d already told him don’t believe everything you are taught.

    What are you really trying to say?

  7. BT Are you serious re leg. Do you need another month non weight bearing. I assume at this stage the plaster is off.

  8. Corkcelt

     

     

    No plaster. Stupid self trying to hurry the recovery by trying ti put weight on my leg. Lifted my leg and felt a sharp pain.

     

    Ill be fine no worties..

    People may have lost their faith in Faith, but they always want to believe in something.

  10. Hoops and Big Vic? Both at Celtic for 2013-14 methinks!

     

     

    Think both of our bhoys have now seen what’s on offer and decided that another season (at least!) with us is the way forward. That being the case, and with the players NFL has brought in, we can look forward with optimism to the new season. Just a case of getting the tricky CL qualifiers oot the way – ‘un then we’re up and runnin’….

     

     

    Bring it on!

    A wee olde guy in work, hard as nails and very left wing was talking about Padre Pio and he explained that, he was praying to him to get him through the West Highland Way.

     

     

    He is a bit of a hardman and I asked him when was he around?

  13. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    They lose faith in Science, so they take up with unScience; they lose faith in medicine and they pin their hopes on unMedicine.

    Why should Northern Ireland be free from British rule and not Scotland?

     

     

    I think Scottish independence is better than being part of the union but I don’t think it will make much difference to peoples lives.

    It won’t initially but it will I believe in about 10 years and with the right people leading us it will, I think for the better.

    Feel free mate, but in all honesty, I could easily add a hundred names to the ten or so that I have mentioned and I’m sure that some on here could add a hundred more. I could also add some very worthy protestant clergy names too, and men and women of other faiths and none, but the bottom line for me mate is I am no preacher and I would never dream of trying to force my religion on others but I would encourage them to read the stories and to have empathy for the passion of the faith.
